The national School Games programme is funded by Sport England to engage young people in competitive sport.
It operates across four levels, from Level 1 in school through to Level 4 at national level, providing appropriate pathways for schools and young people to compete in a range of sports.
Will Evans, of Huub Events, added: “The School Games is a very important programme and provides young people across the country with the chance to enjoy competing in a range of sports.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to be involved with the programme and will work to provide outstanding and inspiring experiences for young people across Derbyshire.”
